Raw Sienna

Available versions:


This watercolor is prepared with a pure natural RAW SIENNA earth of Italian origin without addition of synthetic pigments. The name Sienna derives from the geographical origin of the quarries from which the highest quality pigment was extracted, in the areas of Monte Amiata, which was part of the territory of Siena, Tuscany, in Italy. The pigment is a natural mixture of aluminosilicates with iron oxides and a small part of manganese oxides, which makes the ochre color move slightly towards the browns.
